Who am i?

I'm a wife and a mother of 4. I began my 'journey' at 149+ kilos. 8 weeks ago i finally broke the magical barrier of 130 that had confounded me for so long and weighed in at 129.2. Stupid me though, i self sabotaged again and let family issues close me off to the world and i am now 134.6 again and rareing to do anything it takes to get back into new territory.

Challenge weigh in - wk 2.

Start weight 128.3kg
1st weigh in 127.8kg
2nd weigh in 126.1kg

So, thats a loss of 1.7kg this week, and 2.2kg overall. We wont be doing any of the measurements until the end.

Exercise....how did that go?  
Well, i did great. I went to the gym everyday and had some killer workouts. Plus it was a big day out with the family for me on Saturday and i was on my feet from 8am to 4pm, the morning being spent at little aths. On Sunday we had my daughters semi finals for cricket (they've made the gannies:rock1: ) and i put in 30 mins of brisk walking with 3x15 sets of tricep dips and 3x15 sets of pushups, whilst still keeping my eye on the game. I think i'll do the same thing for next weeks game.
All in all, i was pleased with my physical efforts this week.:thumbu2:

Nutrition....how did that go?  
Hmmm, how do i answer that. I want to say not good. After all, my daughter brought home a burger from her work on Saturday night and without any second thoughts i ate it....well any third thoughts anyway. Other than that my food budget was fantastic, so i shouldn't focus on one negative.
My food was fine. (Perfect if i was maintaining).

Motivation....how did that go?  
I believe that was good also. I mean, a part from the burger episode i had no problems keeping to a healthy eating plan and no problems with putting in some physical effort.

Now, as for the loss. I am very pleased. I wont log the loss in until Friday, my normal CK weigh in day, and hopefully i can lose an extra 200g so i can bypass the 126's alltogether. (I hope i didn't jinx myself :( )
The 25's represent a mini goal for me. It was the last real weight i was concious of, even though it was at the 20 week hospital weigh in for my son. That was almost 12 years ago. This is going to be a big achievement. The thing about reaching my goals though, although i feel pleased i am not ecstatic, i don't know what it is really, though i wonder if it is a part of that feeling that i have that i will one day be successful in my weightloss (to clarify, i mean the same feeling that i have when i thought about -successfully, the sexes of my pregnancies). I've always known i will one day win this weight battle, but knowing that can be a little offputting as i seemed to keep putting the start day off. Maybe though, i am not taking pride in something i shouldn't be proud about. I mean , i should never have put this weight on in the first place.
Or maybe i am just waiting (weighting? ) for the magical double numbers. Who knows...... ultimately as long as i keep plodding on, the only thing that matters is that i am living a much healthier life now, and so are my family.

Wishing everybody some 'happy dolphins'
